Back to Workflow Designer Overview


The Status bar spans across the foot of Workflow Designer and provides easy access to controls that are typically used to modify the look and feel of the user interface. Move the zoom slider left or right or click the "-" or "+" sign to reduce or enlarge the size of workflow objects that appear in the main workspace. Toggle certain panels to temporarily hide them from view in order to increase the overall size of the main workspace. To re-display hidden panels, simply re-click the appropriate control on the Status bar. Hold down the re-size grip located on the right side of the Status bar in order to dynamically modify the overall size of Workflow Designer.
